If I get tested off campus, can I use my results on campus?

Only positive PCR-based COVID-19 test results from off campus will be accepted for tracking within the Safer Badgers app. Negative off-campus tests will not be accepted.

If you have a positive PCR test result off campus, you should submit it via the app and it will be verified by a team of medical professionals at UHS. To be verified, off-campus results should include your name, date of birth, collection date and test type. A letter from a physician or county public health may also be acceptable. Please allow UHS staff time to verify your results after you upload.

If it has been 10 days or less since your verified positive PCR test, your Badger Badge status will change to “building access denied” until your isolation period ends. If your verified positive test was from more than 10 days prior to the date of submission, your Badger Badge will reflect “building access granted” and remain in that status for a duration of 90 days from the date of your positive test. After 90 days, you will be required to participate in regular on-campus testing.
